I promised to update people on the POST 8 Save the Post Office campaign.
It has been just over a year since it started, and valued commenter Ric Locke mentioned that he 'hadn't seen me make much of politics' via Haloscan a while back. But he was wrong!!! The Village Post Office has not closed!!! What's more, Mr Blair and Mr Crozier haven't even mentioned that they were thinking of closing it.
This is a famous victory for us political bloggers. It was an issue that was not even touched by the so-called 'MSM Media' who cosy up to politicians from the Parish Council upwards via the discredited lobby system, existing in a mutual interdependency that is unsustainable in the internet age. Meanwhile, a handful of influential bloggers such as myself have developed a new communications paradigm, bypassing the timidity of the institutionalised and biased print and broadcast media.
Oh Andrew Neil, Neil, Orange Peel!!!
I am therefore very pleased to announce that the campaign, and JonnyB's Private Secret Diary, has been officially endorsed by the UK Independence Party (scroll down to the foot of the page).
This official endorsement by a major political party is excellent news, and can only help in the quest to draw attention to the impact on our communities of the politicians' sinister plans.
